Looks like everything opening Monday, from Howard just now

So - the announcement Monday about an announcement on Thursday was really an announcement about an announcement on Tuesday.

 

Waster who makes stuff up on the spot.  Get him out next election.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

"face coverings and social distancing"

This HAS to go.  It is the ultimate sign of government coercion but most importantly, your acceptance of that coercion.  Why? Because 'they' say so when 'they' have no concrete evidence to support either action but by leaving an edict like tha tin place it means 'they' still retain that element of control to turn on or off at their whim.

It’s just another example of the disorganized nature of everything

I suspect him putting these announcements out forces the rest of CoMin's hand. So when it does come to Thursday's CoMin he'll push them down the full opening up route because that's what the Great Manx Public have been promised.

think covid is round every corner waiting for them

............as evidenced by the face-nappy wearers even in the deepest reaches of the Tesco car park this morning.  I genuinely believe that the indoctrination has been so complete that there are individuals out there who believe that COVID is circulating freely in the open air.

Ha bloody ha!  Just activate your 2 brain-cells before trying to post something only you find vaguely humorous.  In fact, don't bother.  If you are incapable of looking outside your Barlow Bunker at the broader ramifications of what has gone on - yes, to YOU - over the past year then give them both the evening off.

First sign of unknown cases and its back to full lockdown with this type of opening free for all.

I cant see why we cant open with SD and masks. 

Because it's shit? 

What's the point of everyone wearing masks if there might be say 5 people with covid spread across the island? There is no point.

Also, it will very soon be too warm for a snood.

Because it is unnecessary in a Covid free environment. If it comes back in they may consider reintroducing it, but I for one will be happy to see the back of queues, capacity limits and bloody masks. Feel free to wear one and practice SD if it makes you feel safe, you will get no complaint from me, but if I don't have to, I will not be voluntarily doing it when there are no cases. I will still use the hand wash though :flowers:

We found they don't really work in the Rovers...far too many resulting trouser changes.

Apart the fact that it is not needed, having Covid been wiped out from the island for the time being.

It would be a political difficult result for the IOMG. The kind of re-opening you describe is what England is having at the moment. But we had much, much stricter border control and punishing enforcement than England. Thus, the government has to give the Manx public something more in return for all this sacrifice. Do not assume that the Manx public is all made of zero-Covid nutters uniformly. There is a lot of unexpressed discontent I can assure you.

WE must decide whether the rights and freedoms of the 99% should be sacrificed for the 1%.

You "freedom" people are always so fundamentalist and absolute. And, like all fundamentalism, that's always an extreme and shrill perspective. Also, almost invariably, selfishly missing out the other part of that equation: Our responsibilities. Especially to others.

Our freedoms and rights have at no stage been sacrificed. It's simply that some important measures have been temporarily in place in order to deal with a genuine crisis.

You don't seem to understand the point of wearing masks.

It is to stop you spreading it not getting it.

Look at the beginning of March, everyone going around as if there was no pandemic, one live case and within a week about 2,000 in self isolation. 

FFS its no big deal, put a mask on, you will probably look better for it too.......................
